HUGE news -- 160 companies, including mega-giants Coca-Cola, Starbucks, and Unilever have announced this week that they're suspending all Facebook ads!

It's an unprecedented response to the tech giant's disastrous disinformation and hate speech policies, which have already impacted elections and fueled real-life racist violence.

Facebook is in full panic-mode -- 99% of their revenue comes from ads. Now they're doing damage control but the movement is picking up steam.

If we can get more corporate giants -- like Proctor and Gamble, the world's largest advertiser -- to join right now, we could finally get the critical Facebook reform we've needed for years. But we need to push before the... momentum drops -- add your name and share everywhere:

Tell companies: Suspend your Facebook advertisements until it cleans up its act!

Facebook has seemed totally unwilling or incapable of tackling the platform's problems. But now companies big and small are facing their own reckoning about systems of oppression, and many are taking note of Facebook’s hand in it.

Just for example, Facebook has allowed incitement to violence against protesters in the US; turned a blind eye to blatant voter suppression; fanned the flames of genocide in Myanmar; and refused to call Holocaust denial "hate".

Reform is badly needed. And since Facebook is almost entirely dependent on ad money, this campaign will soon pose a crippling financial threat if Facebook execs don't rethink their approach.

Massive advertisers like Proctor & Gamble are on the fence right now, but could be pushed to join -- this is our chance to build the Facebook the world needs. Add your name:

Tell companies: Suspend your Facebook advertisements until it cleans up its act!

Our community was made for moments like this -- when pressuring companies to act leads to insurmountable impact. Let’s do it again, and help be the guiding light for how companies should move through and engage with the digital age.
